The Frick Collection, New York:
El Greco at the Frick Collection. Exhibition closes on 1st February 2015.
Henry Clay Frick had a deep appreciation for Spanish painting, particularly the work of El Greco. Frick traveled to Spain twice and acquired three works by the artist between 1905 and 1913. Here they are displayed side by side for the first time.
This exhibiton is in concert with El Greco in New York (also closing on 1st February 2015)at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Together, the two exhibitions show all of El Greco’s work in New York public collections and mark the 400th anniversary of the painter’s death.
